Real Deal on the Showboat

Back in the prehistoric Atlantic City days, The Showboat was one of our favorite places to gamble. Dealers wore Mississippi string ties, the PA system piped in Nawlins front line, dixieland and ragtime music, the dealer pits were separated by wrought iron work straight from the French Quarter and the waitresses were dressed like Southern ladies of the night. Over the ensuing decades, a lot of these details have spilled out of the Showboat like water over the levee, taking some of the charm with it. The addition of the House Of Blues has helped somewhat, but what good is a theme if it is half assed.


Are the vibes lucky at Showboat?

Showboat offers a slightly waterlogged take on the paddleboat-style gambling atmosphere. Tons and tons of vintage slot machines in a clean, fun, yet strangely dumpy elegant atmosphere. Gone is the dixieland and the string ties and the waitresses dressed like prostitutes... all of which makes us quite sad. There is still a lot to love at the Showboat.
